Y’all know I avoid politics here. This is my safe space for writing but I feel the need to word dump, in best terms possible, my thoughts on everything that has happened the last 4 years, but more specifically dealing with the Storming of the Capitol building and what is to come the next two weeks.
There is so much to talk about in so many aspects but lets begin with current events. Trump”s own cabinet is talking about using the 25th amendment to get Trump out, despite only 12 days left. Trump needs to get out. He has encouraged all of this violence, racism, xenophobia and Facism from his cult following. 12 days left but thats 12 days to do harm. Remember he is in the most powerful position in America with access to our military, defense and the nuke codes, and thats just the tip of the iceberg. As a citizen in America, this is terrifying.
However this group of people, his supporters, marched down to the Capitol onTrump’s and Giuliani’s (Trump’s lawyer) command to win via a “trial by combat.” Yes, they said that just before the Capitol was stormed. There were other people like Donald Trump Jr, Ted Cruz among many more who encouraged and followed the Presidents demand to overturn our election. They incited violence. They encouraged treason, theft and more. The very people that Trump supposedly supports, you know the police, were at the forefront of this attack doing their jobs, completely unprepared. I will talk about that in a minute. Everyone involved, no matter the level, needs to be arrested who helped encourage this siege. That includes the President, Vice President, his cabinet, Senators, Congressman, Governors, Mayors, Judges, Police, and citizens. Yes, it is that serious and dangerous. Even the White House staff knew it was treason and were warned to stay away from Trump as they can be implicated.
As soon as it was safe for Congress to return after this attack, with Vice President Pence, they returned to work to certify the votes for President Biden and Vice President Harris to tae the office on January 20th. Now I do get that it was 3 am by this point but they should have immediately invoked the 25th Amendment. All of their lives were put at rick because of the highest member of our government. I do not understand why we are waiting. There is still time for more damage to be done. And this as I said is just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much damage that was done and division over the last 4 years due to Trump. We are literally on the brink of our 2nd Civil War.
Worse yet, is these people, known Q-anan and Trump Supporters, are boasting about their actions. The Trump supporters who don’t agree with what happened, are now blaming ANTIFA. The thing about ANTIFA is that its not an organization. It is an idea. An idea against everything these people have been chanting, rallying and committing the last 4 years. These people do not want to take any responsibility at all. Even our own head of FBI has come out to say that ANTIFA does not exist as a terrorist organization. These people, these American Citizens, can not get it through their brains that their cult like beliefs following Trump, is treason. TREASON, legit treason wanting to undo our democratic process that our ancestors fought so hard to put forward and implement in 1776. Why do you fly the American flag, go crazy for independence day and yet you want to undo it all. Talk about being a hypocrite. Before I move on to discussing the police side of this I think its necessary to break down the definitions. It is important to critical think so lets break down those definitions.
Fascism is a form of far-right, authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and strong regimentation of society and of the economy.
Racism is prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.
Xenophobia is a broad term that may be applied to any fear of someone who is different from us.
Treason is the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.
ANTIFA a political protest movement comprising autonomous groups affiliated by their militant opposition to fascism and other forms of extreme right-wing ideology.
Cult is a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing, usually using religion to verify this figure.
25th Amendment is apart of the Constitution and it says that if the President becomes unable to do his job, the Vice President becomes the President.
There is much more to dissect in all this, I will possibly do a part 2, but I really want to take a moment to speak about the Police involvement in all this. Any police officer that did not protect the Capitol building should be fired immediately. This includes the officers who opened the barricades, who took selfies with these domestic terrorists, and those that do not speak up and question why they were not prepared for this. We were warned for months, that something was going to happen. We (this includes the rest of us) ignored the harsh reality that this was truly a threat to our nation.
Now, it would be one thing if they didn’t have the gear or the amount of officers at their department, we could be like yea we need to fix that. However, we know after this past summer (Summer of 2020) that when BLM (Black Live Matter) were protesting, they were in full gear with National Guard there. Vast contrast to what was seen on January 6th, 2021 with the Storming of our Capitol. This just goes to show you, and us, that we have so many deep routed problems in our nation. We are not the best country in the world. We are not the country of opportunities, good healthcare or a good education system. We are a nation parading as a 1st world nation on top of the world, while our citizens our dying or being drafted into a cult.
12 more days until a new President takes office but it will be years, maybe decades, for us as a nation to over come this. What happens to the people with their cult mindset? Will they wake up? Will our government change? Will our education change? There are many more questions so many of us have. It is scary and while yes those 12 days are slowly ticking by, after what we saw happened, what could be next.
Thank you all for letting me word dump and getting my thoughts out there.
